i have spent 32 autumns waiting
to see your face
and every year you don’t arrive
makes your existence
that much harder
to believe in.
what if you never come?

they spent centuries waiting
for Your promised one
and every year He didn’t show
their impatient hearts grew
that much colder
toward You.
what if He never came?

but waiting is nothing to You
Your promises are always kept
and every moment You’re working
to bring light into our darkness.
o God beyond time, help me to wait well.
